Welcome to The Norfolk Broads Forum
This is THE Worlds Largest Forum devoted to the Norfolk Broads, here you can discuss issues about the Norfolk Broads. Or just somewhere to chat with others interested in the Norfolk Broads area. In 2015 forum members spent 2,048 days afloat on the Broads
This was set up by the current BA CEO ostensibly to act as a forum for relevant interested and disparate parties to raise and debate matters of importance to Broadland.
Unfortunately, early scepticism was vindicated as meetings became cluttered with unwanted BA presentations and all criticism of the Authority stifled. Any lingering thoughts of independence went out of the window when, for a long spell, the BF was chaired by the then BA chairman.
In 2016, two of the four BF meetings were cancelled by the BA.
I was interested to see how 2018 would fare.
The first meeting was scheduled for this Thursday, February 1. The usual BA/BF page showed the meeting but had no agenda or papers which was odd. This held until yesterday but today the page simply says the meeting is cancelled.
What on earth is going on?
A forum that is supposed to be an open platform for debate is deliberately being neutered and now shut down because the current top henchmen are scared of being held to account.
